Sculptures in The Louvre!

Last week I have posted some amazing paintings from the world’s most visited and largest art Museum- The Louvre of Paris. As promised then, this post is about some of the most celebrated Sculptures in Louvre.

The Louvre houses many medieval and modern world-famous sculptures which include Greek, French, Italian, Roman masterpieces and some other foreign contributions. Of the thousands displayed in Louvre, the one that I personally loved and admired the most is the ‘Cupid and Psyche’ by the Italian artist Antonio Canova. I have never seen any other sculpture so stunning in my life ever.

And then comes the Winged Victory of Samothrace – a marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike (Victory) which is estimated to be 190 BC old. Though it is badly damaged but still the Winged Victory is considered to be world’s greatest surviving sculpture from the entire Greco-Roman era.

The Dying Slave is another masterpiece on marble from the time of Italian Renaissance – by the great artist Michelangelo.

Visit to The Louvre is undoubtedly one of the bestest thing that has happened in my life 🙂
